Unsurprisingly, Resident Evil 5 heads straight to the top of the Australian sales charts this week. And, curiously, as happened with Street Fighter IV, it was the PS3 version that came out on top.
So why do PS3 owners 'heart' Capcom so much? Resident Evil, sure, aside from a brief affair with the Gamecube, it's remained resolutely a PlayStation franchise. In fact, this is the first RE game to appear on a Microsoft console. Streeties? Not so much, having appeared on almost every console under the sun.
But given there are around 100,000 more 360s out there than PS3s, why are these two games appealing more to the latter?
